If they invade us when we are weak, we will grow strong. Nothing brings out your true heart and ferocity like when someone is trying to harm or take away your home.
Like a mother bird defending her nest full of chicks, you see the fighting spirit in action when forced to defend.
We, as a country, need our backs to the wall. We need to be forced to shake off the fog and get our heads out of our collective ass.
And nothing will do us better than to be invaded by extraterrestrial beings with giant motherships full of probe-happy, abduction-minded aliens who want to suck our brains, steal our natural resources, and eat all our twinkies. (Twinkies are huge in Zeta Reticuli these days).
Yeah, when the aliens invade, the US will come roaring back. The economy will change. The world will change.
And you heard it here first.
